PHILADELPHIA — Amazon has been sued by the parent of a minor who allegedly suffered burns from a temporary tattoo product purchased from the website.
Tory Williams, parent and natural guardian of K.W.B., a minor, filed a complaint Jan. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Amazon.com Inc., alleging negligence, strict product liability, breach of warranty and misrepresentation.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff purchased a GSN Temporary Tattoo with Henna Stencil Set from the Fab Cart marketplace on Amazon.com on Dec. 15, 2017. Williams alleges that on Jan. 14, 2018, K.W.B. used the product on her upper left extremity and then fell asleep with her face on her hand. She claims K.W.B. woke up the next day with burns on her face and upper extremity caused by the defective product.
Williams seeks trial by jury, monetary relief in excess of $75,000, interest, and all other just relief. She is represented by Gerald Baldino Jr., of Sacchetta & Baldino in Media.
